Wiluna and the Sport & Recreation Centre


A varied working life eventually led me to the position of Manager of an Indigenous Art Centre in the remote township of  Wiluna, Western Australia where, over a period of five years, I enjoyed the challenges  of the outback while mentoring the Birriliburu Artists and children in the development of their creative skills.

One of our projects  was to give the Wiluna Sport & Recreation Centre a facelift.    Working alongside the Artists,  we chose the theme of  The Canning Stock Route,  land that is central to the Biriliburu Artists.  The Artists each chose a particular section to paint, while I was called upon occasionally  to deliver their design to areas beyond their reach.
